The trip was amazing! We have Eddie as our tour guide. He was very knowledgeable about the trip. The trip went delay because of some traffic issues. However, Eddie ensure that we will cover as much as we can in the trip and indeed we had. One of the reason I joined the trip because of the Salem side trip. I was so scared that the trip will be canceled because of the delay. However, Eddie ensure that we get to visit there even for a short time. In general I am very satisfied about the trip. Thank you.

Amazing tour! I and my wife took it at the time of memorial weekend last year. The tour was extremely well planned and the guide Hao was very informative and helpful. English was good enough and easy to understand. The itinerary is full of wonderful spots - starting with the mystic aquarium. It is pricey for the size but otherwise a great place to see. you can touch the fish and see the sea lions / whales. Views from Cadillac mountain are amazing and so is bar harbor. Do try the blueberry icecreams. the last day has the portland lighthouse which is quite a view- calm and serene. The last stop of zoo is also fun with lot of animals and birds to see and click! overall a comfortable journey, with frequent stops made. The movies on board the bus and wifi makes the travel time much easier to pass. Yes, you do have to adjust to be on time as per the itinerary, but that is what such tours come with. if you do not want to plan a lot, want to save money and have a relaxed time in beautiful Acadia park, you should go for this tour.

Our tour to Maine was well planned. The transportation was good. Our tour guide Randy was very good and helpful. He took extra efforts to make sure that all passengers are comfortable and enjoy their trip. He made some real time changes to adjust to the time lost in traffic.

It was a great trip! Me and my husband primarily went for Acadia and and while reading my review, please bear in mind that I have driven to, explored, hiked and treasured around 20 National parks at my own pace during my decade long stay in the western part of US, hence I am not bias toward bus tours. Yes, this trip was hectic (only moderately) but that was expected being a short conducted tour and that was the very reason we took it. If you want to get an idea of Acadia and the treasures of coastal Maine in a short 3 day trip without exhausting yourself from driving, then this is definitely for you. This was our reason too and Taketours definitely delivered on their promises; we would go back later on our own to explore more. Our tour guide 'Randy' had a keen sense of time management, hospitality and people's skills. Our driver 'T' was excellent, we really appreciated her. Randy made genuine effort for everyone to enjoy what the trip had to offer. He revised our itinerary to avoid bad weather and get around traffic conditions. He even made the bus return back to Acadia in the afternoon because the mountain top view was completely foggy in that morning; that's for us was a great sign of an efficient and considerate tour manager. The trip was designed to accommodate plenty of time to enjoy fresh-caught Bar harbor cuisine and we had great seafood lunch as well as dinner at our own pace there while taking in the harbor view. The bus was clean and all the admission fees were clearly written on the website as well as on the ticket. Randy even texted us the day before with his phone number, itinerary detail and costs. Attractions were optional so that people can choose/pay for things as per their taste or health abilities and that's a great positive point for us. We didn't want to visit Mystic aquarium, so we didn't go and instead enjoyed visiting local shops and a taste of local cuisine in 'The Boathouse'. Randy and the tour organizers also made sure that the bus stops at every 2 hours, we really appreciated that. One negative point for this tour is no allowed restroom usage on board unless its an emergency. Now, people with overactive bladder and other relevant conditions should consider that; although we were completely fine as Randy diligently made stops every 2 hrs and did allow a few emergency usage for little kids and senior citizens. The tour company doesn't avail a restroom cleaning service every night during this 3 day tour, hence their rule of no on-board usage without emergency. Being seated in the back near the restroom we really didn't mind that rule as this area could have been very smelly otherwise. My only suggestion would be to put this rule in your website detail so that people may know about it beforehand. Randy was very nice to tell everyone this before boarding and oriented people to the restroom located in the company office building in Chinatown. In summery, it was a very professional tour, filled with great scenery, delicious cuisine, abundant view of marine life during the cruise trip and plenty of activities for the kids (small zoo and aquarium) that was managed with an excellent tour guide and was driven by an excellent driver. In return they do charge a minimum 12% service fee / gratuity; we thought that was well deserved.
